Clematis is a climbing vine with gorgeous flowers. These photograms are of the flower after the bloom has wilted, lost its petals, and gone to seed. The clematis flowers are placed in the enlarger and projected onto a collodion wet-plate glass plate. The original plates are 4.25″x5.5″ and can be contact printed as salted paper prints or silver gelatin prints. More dramatic are the limited edition archival inkjet enlargements up to 40″x50″.
